Dear Friends,

San Diego is officially in the orange tier of California's "Blueprint for a Safer Economy". Like many businesses and organizations that are permitted to reopen at a limited capacity, we are once again modifying our plans to comply with current guidelines and provide the safest environment possible in our mission to deliver exceptional performing arts experiences.

This is good news because with the Governor’s announcement Wednesday aiming to fully reopen California’s economy by June 15, we have a much better idea of what a reopening might look like and how best to plan for the return of large-scale, indoor, live events.

When will San Diego Theatres reopen?

The process of reopening our historic theatres after such an extended intermission takes time. We are committed to holding events at full capacity and will not reopen our doors to the public until we can do so safely. While we don't have a definitive timeline yet, we anticipate that events will resume this year in late Summer or early Fall. Rest assured that we are taking the measures necessary to ensure a safe, exceptional experience for both you and our artists.

We are excited to share more details of our reopening with you as they unfold. If you are not already subscribed, please consider signing up for our eNews for the latest developments. You can also get venue-specific updates by following @SDBalboa and @SDCivic on social media. 

Thank you all for your continued support as we look forward to the future when we can again gather to Create Moments That Matter.

Until then,

To our valued Clients, Friends and Patrons:

We find ourselves in unprecedented times.

As we announced last week, all events at the San Diego Civic Theatre and the Balboa Theatre have been either canceled, postponed or rescheduled to later dates. We have been monitoring each of the precautions set by the State of California, the County of San Diego and CDC recommendations regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus).

In consideration of these unforeseen circumstances, San Diego Theatres management is enacting the following changes immediately:

  • Box office windows (located in the San Diego Civic Theatre) are closed until further notice
  • All ticketing phone lines will close, effective immediately
  • Refund requests should be submitted where your purchase was made
  • Theatre office staff will work remotely

This challenging situation in which we are operating is changing by the moment. The safety of our staff, patrons and guests is paramount. Our goal is to continue to communicate with you about what's happening at San Diego Theatres and looking forward to resuming operations after this intermission.

Thank you for being a friend, patron, and supporter of our mission to deliver exceptional performing arts to our region.
